activists chanting "all day, all week, shut down wall street." dozens in new york have already been jailed. to mark the special day, i bought the movement a bar of soap. let's also turn to one occupier for some thoughtful words. we're going to meet them at the [bleep], [bleep] stock exchange and we're going to rock this town. [bleep] [bleep] >> greg: my old roommate. meanwhile in san diego, a moment of silence is offered for the psycho who shot at the white house. >> the guy who shot at the white house today. [ moment of silence ] >> greg: there you go. it's good to see they care. but what of the other crimes like the assault and rain committed at the protest. let's ask maxine waters whose three remaining brain cells
2:02 pm
are playing palms. >> that's life. it happens. whether it's with protesters or other efforts going on in this country. >> greg: that is life and how it happens, which the best escalation why for raid of perversion skates beneath media scrutiny because for them the heart is in the right place. like brain dead clebs can condemn police for convicting protesters without opening up their own mansion up to house the vermin. they know it's easier to like the message from afar than experience mayhem from within. which is what i say about their crappy movies. ♪ >> greg: oh, bob. i'm only been back for two minutes and you're already tired of me. >> bob: your monologue was great. until the last part of that. why do you assume everybody protesting is vermin, dirty, disgusting dogs? >> greg: maybe because they're very min and disgusting dogs.
2:03 pm
>> bob: what is that you call your friends? that happens to be a friend of mine. he had an important message to say. here is the reality. tv business, you always say how the tv favored all the left and liberals. every time there is a wacko like that, that is what gets on tv. you have don't get people with a serious message about wall street. i'll repeat again, that is the vermin are in wall street getting $1 million bonuses. >> greg: overtime, the decent people, which was a small part of the move aren't gone. malcontent, perverts and people committing crimes. sniffings going to read the rap sheet so far for occupy. but it's 271 appearances. antisemitic activities. this one says the boston police arrest over 100. support protest and fight judea capitalist bangsters and it goes on and on. there is anti-semites.
2:04 pm
van jones all over the media saying this is the message of -- you know who this is, bob? >> bob: yes. >> eric: now the next cause is occupy. good luck. your 15 minutes is about up. >> greg: here is the thing. it has been around for two months and the media has done its best to avoid tainting the movement. >> bob: what? >> greg: yes. the only people rorring obit are blogs and fox news. no one else really is. could you imagine if the media had actually done some responsible reporting on this? the media would have been over in a week. >> dana: it's worth comparing the media coverage of the tea party protesters and remember the rowdier town hall meetings. you didn't have a situation like the former roommate vick out there. i talked to a woman today who is working two jobs. she said i don't have time to go for a walk in the park, let alone spend two months in the park. the guys overstayed their welcome. i don't disagree on merits
2:05 pm
they might have grievances that are worth pointing out, but they stayed way too long. now they sullyed the movement. i used to think next spring they will come back, better organized and fund and with a cohesive message. now it might have gone too far. no one wants to own the guys. >> greg: there is new polling that shows america is getting tired of this. they haven't been seeing the full story. two-third of the people are sick of these, i guess you could call them dirt bags. i don't know if that is right. i'm calling them that. >> andrea: they get the tax dollars are going to support this by cleaning up the mess they make. i feel sorry for a lot of these people. they're not that bright. they don't understand that the first amendment doesn't protect lawlessness. in the case of new york, i do blame bloomberg. i give him credit for coming out and at least acknowledging they're doing something wrong, but two months late? this is my problem with bloomberg, too. he cherry picks when he wants to invoke the first amendment. for the mosque he comes out and says they have a right to build it.
2:06 pm
at 9/11, no, no, no, no clergy at the 9/11 memorial. now he is silent and then he comes out to say -- >> bob: there are hundreds of thousands of people participating in this. you get 257 -- >> greg: that is not true. it was always exaggerated. criminality has been minimized. >> bob: i assume you are in favor of the people in wall street they are protesting against? >> eric: stop, stop, stop. what the message? you don't know what the message is. >> bob: 99-1. >> eric: what is that? >> bob: 1% of the country controling 40% of the wealth. that's wrong. >> eric: how do you fix it? what a better system? >> bob: tax them. >> eric: tax them? we're taxed. >> bob: most of the people -- >> eric: tax people more? >> bob: let me tell you something, little brother. the reality is that most of the jobs created in the country are created by small businesses who don't make $1 million a year. the people down there shopping around on paper and --

2:08 pm
things that men have -- if he had any of those. he would charge brookfield properties all the expense it's costing them. in the millions of dollars with the police fund. brookfield property. but the problem is his girlfriend, someone he spends every night with is on the board of the brookfield property. >> bob: if i pulled that thing you did with the producers would yell at me. >> andrea: giuliani never would have let it happen. never would have let it happen. >> dana: i think the defense offered for these people is hurting them. it's not meritorious. somebody with a tough love message could have come out and helped them figure out, because what are they going to -- what do they want to do? they might complain about it, but it's not going to change. change >> bob: this is not property private. number one. when they built the park it was conditions to turn it in to 24-hour citizens public park. >> eric: maintained by whom? >> bob: by who? >> eric: brookfield

2:10 pm
>> bob: don't ask me that question. >> eric: or assault innocent women there. >> bob: the police overreacted. yes, there has been bad news. but for some reason because you don't like their message you keep telling people, who by the way went home at night because a lot of them had to take the geritol. >> dana: you started to compare them to the tea people saying it was no different. it is different. >> bob: why? >> greg: it is over. it is starting to hurt president obama. now that all the mayors are getting together and pushing people out because they know it will hurt him. >> bob: hope it's over so we can stop talking about it. >> greg: i want to stop talking about it. >> eric: that bar of soap? that would be enough for the whole crowd. >> bob: you don't want to stop talking about it. you live on this. it's like you guys are monkeys for this. >> greg: they keep providing with us wonderful information.

2:16 pm
bob predicted that gingrich would rise. but i think he played it safe the entire time. it's not surprising. rick perry after a series of stumbles has fallen. what is also interesting about the poll the likability facto factor. romney and cain are the likable. newt gingrich isn't that high up. asked who would be trusted with the nuke, majority of the respondents said newt gingrich. that is interesting. likability is important. they want to know they will like the guy or gal in their living room for the next four years. >> dana: gingrich had an early stumble out of the gate in june but has come back, as bob predicted. what do you think of the latest -- he had a private sector life. he wanted his clients freddie mac. some people make something of that. do you think it hurts him? >> eric: i like newt. he is the smartest guy at
2:17 pm
every debate. he should be near the top. he will have a hard time explaining $1.5 million he got from fannie and freddie demanding it may not be part of the bail-out. hear me out. it will be a tough thing to talk about. this morning i woke up and newt at the top of the polls. it woke up and msnbc, politico, left wing outlets have newt, big problems with fannie and freddie, like clockwork, newt is on top. >> dana: how will he do with the front runner? >> bob: i watched him do the interview with hannity. i gave him his first $5,000. >> bob: that wasn't for candidacy. >> dana: don't date yourself. >> andrea: bob is 40, you know. >> bob: let me say this about gingrich. he handles himself now, his discipline is better. he is a guy never had an unspoken thought. he let thoughts stay in his
2:18 pm
brain now. he came up with interesting strategic line about the old newt and new newt. he said i learned, i'm now a grandfather. he has a pretty good pitch on that. one thing about perry. the reason people fall so fast, there was nothing to catch him. he wasn't known. he came out of texas. people rise that fast in polls, come down and nothing to catch them. newt, he has a long history and they think he at least understands washington. i think the freddie mac thing is a problem for him. there will be people at freddie mac that will leak about what he did. newt said i went in there as historian and said you should don't the loans. everybody else -- >> dana: we'll go to rick perry. >> andrea: here is why it won't hurt him. frank lynn raines and president obama. they tried to tie him to that. and rahm emanuel was on the board. look what happened? he made him the chief of staff. >> dana: quickly, a rick

perry, two things to get to and then i come back to you. rick perry put out an ad in response to earlier this week, president obama referred to americans as lazy. this is rick perry's response. >> we have been a little bit lazy in the last couple of decades. >> can you believe that? that is our president thinks is wrong with america? that americas are lazy? pa that is pathetic. time to clean house and time for a balanced budget. to force washington to stop overspending. if congress balks, cut their pay, send them home. obama socialist policies are bankrupting america. we must stop him now. i'm rick perry, i approve this message. >> bob: he does look like an aging ken doll. >> dana: perfect hair. did you see lazy americans or hard-working americans? >> greg: i think of a cialis commercial. i keep thinking that rick perry is going to jump in a

he didn't call americans lazy. he called business guys -- >> dana: you can't -- that is like -- >> eric: second time he has done it. >> greg: he talks to us like an angry principal. oh, if you could only do better. >> bob: that's because you were in the principal's office all the time. >> andrea: it was the first job. >> dana: i'm trying to get a word in edge wise. ahead, steven chu got grilled for losing half a billion taxpayer dollars on solyndra. we'll analyze what happens next on "the five." ♪ ♪

2:29 pm
did is have a ceremony. then the depart of energy asked the company not to do the layoffs before the election. political nature. >> eric: that is a point we were going to bring up. how can this man, department of energy, ask solyndra to hold off until midterm elections before announcing the layoffs? they had to know it would create outrage. there is no defense. >> bob: it happens all the time. >> dana: that does not happen all the time. >> bob: bad news is something you don't announce before an election. the other thing i say to you. i know i'm backed up on solyndra again. we never talk about the companies that are successful and make it. dana is the first to point out solar industry is beginning to come to its own. if it were up to you, there would not be alternative energy -- wait a second.

knew that members of his own staff thought the solar panel maker was in trouble before the government guaranteed a half a billion in loans. chu said he knew of no white house contacts with his department about the solyndra loan approval or its restructuring. the deficit reduction supercommittee has less than a week before its deadline to commit a man for a trillion dollars in budget cuts. we will tell you where they are tonight. president obama is in indonesia and we'll explore promises he made before leaving australia that might be tough to keep. in the grapevine, how a meeting about openness can be closed to the media.

2:38 pm
two hours long. welcome back to "the five" where we are moving to the penn state sex scandal now. a lot of new developments. first, i want to talk about the connection that the pennsylvania governor has that jerry sandusky's charity. apartmently tom corbett agreed a $3 million grant for the second mile. one thing i'll say about this, we have to be careful here. i've been as tough on this as you know, as anybody here about the whole penn state group. we don't yet know about second mile and whether it's done good things. before we can decide to throw it in with sandusky there are a lot of kids there may be getting help. before we jump on loans to second mile, find out if second mile done things to help some. >> dana: they probably have. >> eric: not necessarily second mile but maybe the governor. the grand jury report. 23 pages, it's horrible. it's horrible. >> eric: it doesn't mention -- but while this was going on and this was going on
2:39 pm
after this was happening did they approve a $3 million grant. >> bob: four kids live and trying to feed, house and clothes. maybe the kids needed it. how is that. i don't think we should throw it together. >> andrea: he says he couldn't disclose details of the case when he went from a.g. to governor. he didn't have to disclose details of the case. i just think, i don't agree that the money should have gone out the door. i think before we have the facts, we need to keep the money and get the story straight before there is millions of dollars going out the door. >> eric: what about the kids who are at -- >> bob: what about the kids at second mile living there and need it. >> andrea: they will get et once the investigation is done. get the facts first. >> bob: you can't wait to do it -- what if it takes three months? these kids are living day-by-day. >> andrea: okay. >> bob: whether sandusky lured people out of the charity itself -- >> eric: you make a good point. it's not the kids' fault. i agree with you. >> bob: but the chances -- >> dana: the chances of charity for children having done something good along the way are really high.
2:40 pm
the question whether sandusky was trying to recruit young children from this is part of his psychosis whatever it might be is a different point there. needs to be a safety net for children like this. second mile is not the only thing going. >> greg: it's amazingly clever how pedophiles operate. it's like, you know, they create an organization to manifest their hobby. it's like an alchie opening a winery. what is the hardest thing to do? shut it down and you change the name and you -- it's always going to be scarred by this scandal. >> andrea: some of the kids dent need money thrown at them. they probably need more. investigation low pressure >> greg: the dude is still out on bail. >> bob: why he is out on bail is a good question. why some people haven't been indicted yet is a good question, including the head coach. pedophiles prey on school kids usually around public schools. elementary schools and things. if you had that situation, and you had somebody who had gone
2:41 pm
to elementary school or taught at an elementary school, that has happened before, pedophiles. you don't punish the school. you punish the pedophile. >> eric: part of the problem is the 23 pages if you want to know everything about the story, read the 23 pages in the strait of hormuz story today called "this is penn state." this guy was having sex with 10, 11, 12-year-old boys on school property in school buildings in the showers of the football locker rooms. this school is on the hook here. b. why have we not heard more about the judge that was connected and may have profited from second mile that reduced his bail by half. >> andrea: he deuceed his bail by half. the charity raised money. for her judge race. she didn't recuse herself. now they have brought in a judge from a different county. but she has a duty to avoid the appearance of inpropriety. why would she stay on the bench for the case. it makes no sense. pennsylvanian, and i look at the state and i'm so disappointed. are there any good men or
2:42 pm
women left? it touches everybody in the state. >> dana: it's so deeply corrupt. i think one of the concerns i have is that it is so horrible and for somebody who has a strong stomach and can get through the 23-page grand jury report -- >> eric: read it 12 times. it is brutal to read. >> dana: i'm thinking because it's so horrible in some ways you want to shut your mind down and you don't want to know. i don't want to talk about it e's disgusting. i don't want to know. but the -- >> eric: have you read the report? there was one senior, or assistant who just had graduated, graduate assistant. assistant coach and another high school coach all in this report who saw witnesses this man at sometime rolling around with the kids on the floor naked. there are a lot of heads will roll. >> bob: other thing is this went on a long, long time. we are talking about the first, the 1990s when this
2:43 pm
thing started. this thing has been going on 15 years which means a lot of people and we know now from this and a lot of people knew about it. for all that time, how you can look yourself in the mirror in the morning and say i didn't turn this guy in. >> greg: you know the guy is guilty of something really bad when he is willing to admit he is showering with boys. if that is what he is willing to admit, imagine what he really did. >> dana: one thing about the boys the victims they prey upon, they are usually the ones that don't have father figures in the picture. married to the moms or not. single moms who are looking for a little bit of help maybe from a charity like second mile to help them figure out how to get their children taken care of after school while they work two or three jobs the moms have to be horrified. you know, the one i read about, when she called and he admitted he had done wrong and i said i wish i were dead. can't imagine what kind of
